The Albuqueruqe International Sunport is open again after a suspicious package investigation closed the airport for more than an hour Monday evening.
Airport staff announced the closure of a terminal on twitter just after 5 p.m. Monday, and the airport didn’t open again until almost 6:30 p.m.
A spokesman for the Albuquerque Police Department said in an email release just before 6 p.m. that APD’s Bomb Unit was investigating the item.
“At this time passengers are not permitted entry into the terminal,” the Sunport tweet said. “We don’t have an estimated time frame at this time, so please follow our latest thread for up to date information.”
Sunport officials did not say if any flights would be diverted, delayed, or cancelled.
According to subsequent tweets, travelers will need to check with their airlines individually to get their flight status.
NOTICE: Due to a security concern, officials are currently restricting access to the terminal. Inbound passengers are being asked to stay in the gate area and entry to the terminally is blocked. Please follow this thread for official updates.
